Bennets Bar

A venerable institution since 1839 little has changed in Bennets Bar since it was created as the sister to the neighbouring Kings Theatre

Enjoy excellent cask ales and a vast array of malt whiskies in Victorian splendour. Reassuringly unchanged Bennets Bar is the perfect spot to enjoy historic Edinburgh at it’s finest. Enjoy tempting offerings from our gorgeous menu or indulge in one of our cask ales or specialist malt whiskies.

As panto season draws in we have a special preview of our festive menu available 7 days a week.

For those looking to really indulge check out our adjacent new restaurant La Petite Mort.
